My name is Alex McGilvery and I have been reading and writing stories as long as I can remember. If you would like to read some of my writing you can go to Worth1000 or Wattpad. I have been reviewing books for a few years, mostly through ArmchairInterviews.com.
I decided to start my own review site for a few reasons. The first is that most reviewers will not review books that are released in electronic format. While this isn’t a problem if you are going to buy Stephen King’s The Cell in electronic format, since there is no shortage of people reviewing Stephen King, it is more of a problem if you are thinking of buying Dio’s Detective Agency by Brian Riley. Given the ever increasing popularity of ebooks, I figure to get ahead of the curve and specialize in ebooks.
The second reason is very like the first. Many ebooks are self-published, like Brian Riley’s. Only a very few places will review self-published books and those you need to pay them to write the review. It is hardly an unbiased review if you are writing them a cheque. I will review self-published books on the same basis as any other book.
The third reason is purely practical. I live in northern Canada. Publishers really don’t like mailing books to Canada. So I won’t have anything to review unless people can email it to me. If you have a book you would like me to review, read the About page on how this is going to work, then send me an email.
